Conscience in the family
Someone is excluded from their family if they contradict the standards of their conscience. For example, if they join a group that has a different conscience. The exclusion is justified with the good conscience of the family and demanded by it. This sometimes goes so far that this member is killed. Or a woman hides a child and gives it away because it is considered a disgrace in her family to have a child out of wedlock. Or she aborts this child out of fear of her own exclusion.
Here we see how life threatening a good conscience can be. Conversely, when a woman gives away a child under these circumstances, or when she aborts a child, she wants to free herself from her feelings of guilt in the sense of balancing giving and taking by atoning for it. In other words, she does something to herself. She might get sick and want to die.
But not everyone has to atone for it themselves. It is enough for another person to atone on their behalf. This too is a movement of conscience. The atonement does not have to be personal.
Who wishes for this atonement? The "God of Conscience." All sacrifices offered to him, especially all child sacrifices, serve to reconcile him. That is, they serve to compensate for an exclusion. Those who are willing to accept atonement bring blessings to those for whom they sacrifice themselves.
This is a displacement of compensation in the sense of: first the sacrifice, then the blessing. This movement of conscience works behind the attempts of children to save their parents by wanting to become ill or die in their place. At the same time this movement of conscience is the basic movement behind every tragedy. However, here it is connected with a violation of the hierarchy, in which a subordinate takes the place of a superior without being aware of this violation of the hierarchy.
For what reason? Conscience assures them that they thereby earn a greater right to belong to their family.
